Amazing Family Law Attorney!
I can’t adequately express how thankful I am for Derrick Wilson. Having him in my corner has literally changed my life! Before hiring Mr. Wilson, I spent 5 years feeling like a victim and being scared of my ex-husband. Co-parenting was a nightmare. When I finally couldn’t take anymore I decided I needed an attorney. When I walked into my first consultation meeting with Mr. Wilson I was a jumbled mess who felt powerless. Derrick listened to my concerns and provided excellent guidance on my parental rights and possible next steps. By the time our meeting was over I felt confident and ready for the road ahead. It’s been a year since that first meeting and Derrick has been by my side every step of the way! I can confidently say that hiring him was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made! I no longer feel scared or powerless thanks to Derrick’s help! He exceeded all of my expectations and has provided a sense of peace that I didn’t think was possible. If you are considering hiring an attorney, Derrick Wilson is the one you need!!

Top notch representation!
Derrick & Rebekah have helped me many times thru the last 20 year. They are fast, accurate and professional. There has never been a legal issue that I did not receive accurate and excellent advise. I would recommend their services to anyone requiring family law issues.

This attorney is on top of everything! Very compassionate and thorough!
Derrick Wilson has been AMAZING at advising and representing me in my complicated and long divorce. He is always on top of the situation, and it is obvious his peers/competitors greatly respect him as well. He is a very compassionate person who always remains level-headed and always has my best interest in mind. He explains the process very well, in clear and concise steps. He communicates in a very efficient way to reduce costs while never making me feel bad for needing extra time when the situation requires it. He is fair and practical yet very intelligent and knows the law. Bottom line, you want this attorney on your side, not the other way around! If you need expert representation, Derrick Wilson is the best choice!
